The Sunday Brunch Post, Episode V

DISCLAIMER: Brunch still not included.

As this is the first Sunday Brunch Post of 2016, I’m just going to take a moment to say Happy New Year! 2016 already, huh?! 

I’ve been loving this time of year for blogging; everyone’s 2015 round-up posts and goals for 2016 have been so fun to read. Definitely leave me links in the comments to any you’ve done, because I love reading them.

Mildly interesting things that happened this fortnight:

It’s technically been three weeks since the last Sunday Brunch so I’m going to go ahead and include Christmas in this. YAY CHRISTMAS. It was really strange coming back from travelling and only having a week to get into the Christmas spirit, and it made it feel like the festive period went super quickly. But I had a lovely couple of weeks seeing family and eating too much.

Things that have kept me entertained:

  • I got the BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge 2015 CD for Christmas; it is such a great album and I haven’t stopped listening to it since. My favourite tracks include Disclosure and Sam Smith’s cover of Hotline Bling and Imagine Dragon’s mashup of Blank Space and Stand By Me. Long live the Live Lounge.
  • I’ve been watching BBC’s series Dickensian, which takes a number of Dickens characters from different books and mixes them together in a new fictional story.
  • The best film I’ve seen recently has to be Star Wars. It exceeded all of my expectations and I already want to see it again.

This fortnight’s haul:

  • With Christmas and travelling giving my bank account quite a beating, I’ve mostly stayed away from the sales. However I did repurchase my trusty Body Shop Vitamin C Moisturiser and I’ve also tried out their Tea Tree Oil, which seems to be working well with my skin so far.
  • I also had to buy myself some colouring pencils so I stop stealing my little brother’s, because adult colouring books are my new favourite thing. Who said that graduate life isn’t fun?
  • Finally, I found these sunglasses in a vintage shop in Sheffield for £4. FOUR POUNDS. I’m a self-confessed sunglasses addict, and that’s okay.

Posts I’ve loved:

And finally, here’s a round-up of what I posted over the last two weeks, in case there’s anything you want to catch up on:
